4 Seasons Plate

Recommended Posts

Earlier i was bored, and started playing around with meshes...i know, bad bad boy...sorry. But i stumbled upon quite a bizarre yet quite interesting idea.

 

What i did, was mix the fur clothes meshes with the iron plate meshes...coming up with:

 

furplate4ij.png

 

I had noticed in the textures some new icons not yet utilised, mainly the chainmail manufacturing ones. I dont know, but it looks like manufacturing armours with chain will have some major changes in the future (near or not, i do not know). But this got me thinking, what if you could substitute the chainmail in the platemail recipe, with fur, or leather? Of course there would be a *minor* stat reduction for the specialist plates...

 

The advantage? Arctic and Heat map training, pking, etc without having to compromise your armour stats... leather for lava caves, and fur for the icy tundra....

 

this would also mean people would be buying more plates...because you cant just have the one set that 'does it all'.

 

very unpolished idea, but feel free to discuss, add, crit, etc...

Don't even think of doing this or asking in #help_me how to do this or how to fix the mess you make after you try to do this and have NO idea what you are doing and mess up your images!!!!! ***WE DO NOT ENDORSE DOING THIS AT ALL!***

He knows he is a bad bad boy ;) he said so himself

And I dont mess with meshes since I dont have a clue where I would need to start :P

and even if I knew how to do it I still wouldnt, because I do like to keep playing EL in the future :D

But the idea he has sounds appealing to me:

 

Plates with some parts replaced by either fur or leather for heat or cold protection against a reduction of armour defense points

 

I like this idea ;)

It is all about choices. Choices are good right? Since more choises to make increase the strategies you can apply. More options to choose from for what you want to do with your char.

 

Example:

 

Normal Full Plate + relieing on magic spells for heat/cold/radiation-immunity ->

pro: more/better armour defense points

neg: EMU needed for essences, more mana used for the immunity

 

Plate patched with fur ->

pro: no need for essences for cold protection

neg: less armour points, works only in cold-maps

 

Plate patched with leather ->

pro: no need for essences for heat protetion

neg: less armour points (in between normal plate and fur-patched-plate since leather absorbs some damage too), works best in heat maps but not very usefull in other maps

 

 

You now have to choose where to give those precious gold coins to, in example the normal Iron Plate:

14-20k for total plate set?

=> 42-60k for all 3 plate sets ... ;) we dont all have that kind of money

 

Taking this a step further to the steel and titanium plate sets:

100k for steel set?

=> 300k for all 3 kinds of steel sets ;):P

 

I aint sure about the correct prices, but you got the point:

 

Choises can be good for strategy,

one can only spend their money once

Ahh ok, I took it as you could exchange at will whether it had the fur lining/leather lining/no lining with one set of plate.

I think he was trying to put out the concept more the the graphics.

 

Sounds interesting could set it up like this:

 

Leather lined....more def.

fur lined...........cold protection

cloth lined........heat protection

 

Now the question is would it be 3 diff armors of just underwear.

but we dont need it, there is alrdy startegy.

 

you wear plate to fight normal weaps, and leather/fur to fight magic weaps. You have to chose between extra defence or extra magic protection.

But if you could get a lil of both. Fur lined plate would give you cold def plus def. For when you are fighting things in the snow. I know you could just put on a cape or hat but this would be more uniform. Plus have a huge role play advantage. Because you know you can't really just put on a fur hat and think it will keep your whole body warm.

 

Edit...plus it would give us manu's something to do with some of the new furs

most definetly not, thats the point. it would mean you would be specializing more when thinking about purchasing. this of course also means that the longer a player has been around, the more diverse sets of armour he/she will have collected.

actually leather would be heat defense...and i was emphasizing the need for a greater range of similar statd items, purely because IMHO diversity is an MMO's greatest attribute.

there is a little strategy, but hardly any, its one thing...or the other. There are not top end items that do diferent things that make them great, well apart from the new swords of course!

exactly CD, its not only people who wear the items that need diveristy to keep them entertained and immersed, its the manuers as well. i see this as a good way of expanding the assortment of manuable items...

Maybe this can come in handy after all :)

 

I made that suggestion a great while ago, but no replies in those days.

 

The idea:

 

You need a complete outfit on to get an additional (little) bonus. Could be +1 in armour or +1 in cold defense etc.

 

So, if you are wearing:

complete fur outfit you get a small extra cold protection

complete leather outfit-> +1 armour, +1 heat

normal iron plate outfit -> +1 armour, +1 radiation?

complete fur patched iron plate outfit -> +1 cold, +1 magic?

complete leather patched iron plate outfit -> +1 heat, +1 armour

etc.

etc.

 

Each 'part' will have an effect offcourse, but if you are wearing the complete outfit, you could say it is a tight fit, it is made to be worn like you are wearing it now. Pieces fit together perfectly, so you could have that extra point in armour or heat or cold protection.

 

 

If done so, you can get out the possible bug/flaw in this idea that you wear leather patched boots and pants + fur patched body and head for ALL the positive effects.

It only works perfectly if you wear the complete set.
